Tiger Talk 1st March 2022

Well what a deluge of rain that was! Our Rococo Oval resembling more the aqua fun parks we visit on the coast. No football of course over last weekend as we all assess the damage, wait and continue with our 2022 pre season campaign.

However there has still been plenty happening at the Rococo Noosa Tigers and it started last Tuesday night when the crew from ‘Outside the Locker Room’ addressed 70 men and women on the subject of mental health which was just applauded by all that attended. Later in the year the same team will speak to our entire Senior and Colts lists on the effects of drugs and alcohol in an educational process that is just so relevant and important to sporting clubs like ours these days.

Outside the Locker Room evening!

Great to see Noosa girl Bella Smith being named in the emergencies for the Brisbane lions AFLW team over the past few weeks. My insider tells me she is burning up the track at training and seriously pushing for a senior spot in what is the reigning premiership team who are also flying! Keep at it Bells!

At this stage our practise games this weekend are still going ahead with the Colts up against Moreton Bay from midday, Seniors up against Mayne from 2pm and our Women playing a 6 quarter game against Surfers Paradise from 4.45pm. For all further updates please check our website, Facebook page or other social medias over the course of the week.

Of course one of the social days of the year, the Annual Golf Day is this Sunday from 11am at the Noosa Golf Club. One not to be missed.

Bob Cross

On a sadder note the Noosa Tigers AFC send their condolences to the families of Bob Cross and Michael Sobey who both passed away last week. Bob of course was a past Tiger Treasurer and superb volunteer whose son, Brad, has been a pivotal member of the Tiger family for over two decades.

Michael is fondly remembered as a sports mad pillar of our community who frequented our Presidents lunches and race days! Both will be sadly missed!

See you at Rococo Oval Saturday and at the Golf Day on Sunday! Should be a cracking weekend!

Go Tigers – Cheers, Pittsy
